Google announced yesterday their unveiling of a new “suggested” post type that allow business owners to feature positive customer reviews.
The Google My Business team explains that these posts will be automatically suggested based on recent 4 or 5 star reviews left on your business profile.
“Google My Business will provide suggested posts to help you showcase positive reviews left for your business. You may get suggestions for new testimonials to post when you sign in to Google My Business, or via email notifications.”
You will be able to review the posts before they go live.
Google Posts will definitely be a more efficient way of sharing positive customer/client feedback and provide easily digestible social proof.
Google indicated that this feature would be rolling out in certain countries but they have not yet released an exact list of territories or launch dates.
As more information on this new feature is released, we will be updating this article.
